Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations in which students learn about international relations, diplomacy, and global issues. Here are just a few of the benefits or participating in MUN:

  1. Develop your public speaking and negotiation skills: MUN involves giving speeches, debating, and negotiation solutions to global problems. These skills are highly valued by employers and will benefit you in any career path you choose.
  2. Expand your knowledge of global issues: MUN requires students to research and understand the positions of different countries on a wide range of issues. This will not only broaden your knowledge of current events, but also help you develop a more informed perspective on the world.
  3. Build your resume: Participating in MUN is a great way to stand out on college and job applications. It demonstrates leadership, teamwork, and a commitment to learning and global citizenship.
  4. Make new friends: MUN is a great way to meet like-minded students from your school and beyond. You'll have the opportunity to work with and learn from students from different cultures and backgrounds, and make lasting friendships along the way.

Since 2017, JLG has sent students to numerous MUN conferences (MUNoH, BerMUN2 and GloMUN) representing the interests of various countries. The delegates worked from 9 am to 5 pm in their committees and councils to argue, debate and negotiate solutions which, finally, had to be presented and voted on in the General Assembly.

Planning this school year, we are looking forward to our next conferences in January 2023, February 2023 and October 2023. But first we celebrate our very own and first MUN project day in December 2022 in cooperation with the DGVN (Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Vereinten Nationen).

So if you want to gain valuable skills, expand your knowledge, and make new friends, consider doing the MUN team. You'll be glad you did! 

The MUN team at John-Lennon-Gymnasium meets every Tuesday from 14:05 - 15:35 in room 104 and welcomes students from year 7-11.

If you are interested contact B. Bergmann or J. Koller via it's learning or via email. 

Come and join the debate!
